Sail Away Lyrics

by Brian Wilson

When I desire company
I'll leave my footprints on the sand by a reckless sea
Hopin' you'll come to me
And we'll explore what might have been
And leave the shore and give this tired old world a spin
When my ship will come in

Sun up! We'll sail away the day that my ship comes in
Fast as the highest mast can take us to any old where but here
One captains paradise for two
Stay in a sea that's twice as blue
It all waits for me and you when my ship comes in

You go and get the telephone
Give it a real good yank and thank God we are alone
In a tropical zone
While we surf out the Caribbean
At every port a third world orders nouvelle cuisine
From that aquamarine

We'll tell our kind and gentle friends
There still is time to make amends
We'll send 'em a card that ends
"'Til your ship comes in!"

Sail away - sail away - just sail away when my ship will come in
Sail away - sail away - just sail away when my ship will come in

Oh island in the sun
What I don't know won't hurt me none
When all's said and done
When my ship will come in
That perfect host in harmony
We'll raise a toast to what's still left of my memory
When will my ship come in?

We'll sail away - sail away - just sail away when my ship will come in
We'll sail away - sail away - just sail away
